Underwater and shore edge clean-up.

On August 9, Jim and Alexa Kennedy and Mark O’Connor carried out a little underwater and shore edge cleanup. Visibility was quite poor, so it’s possible we’ll try to do another one  once the water clears a bit.

Oathill Lake Spring 2012 Clean-up

Saturday, May 5 @ 0900 (rain or shine)

If you can help out in this community event, please gather at 3 Fairfield Ave. We’ll divide the shoreline and trails among participants and will hopefully make short work of it.

Reasons to participate:

  1. Help out your environment. It doesn’t matter what you do, just don’t talk about it, do something.
  2. A good opportunity to lead by example and it’s only one morning.

Gloves, bags and refreshments will be provided by the organizers. Community
spirit and engagement will be the bonus provided by your personal involvement.
As in our previous efforts, we’ll all find it interesting and rewarding to meet those
neighbours we hadn’t yet met or really didn’t know. See you there.

Tree Planting Spring 2011

Thanks to all who participated in tree planting on the trail side of Oathill Lake on June 4th. Trees were provided by Adopt A Stream and 12 volunteers planted roughly 150 red spruce saplings in less than an hour! Hopefully many of the little trees will survive and thrive and ultimately replace the many trees that have been lost in this area due to a number of hurricanes and other strong wind events in recent years.

Oathill Lake Clean-up Spring 2011

Thanks to everyone who participated in the second annual clean-up around Oathill Lake on May 14th. We had 20 participants collect over 11 bags of garbage as well as a pile of other loose junk from around the lake. Many thanks to Clean Nova Scotia for providing supplies and garbage pick-up.

It’s spring time on Oathill Lake.

Now that the ice is starting to clear around the edge of the lake, the resident beaver has been seen swimming about in the open water. The other day, one of our members also saw the river otter sitting on the ice lunching on something.
